Bose Family Approached UK To Declassify Files on Netaji But They Refused

Published on 7 October, 2015 at 2:21 pm By

The UK has asked for more time on deciding whether to declassify the secret files in its possession on Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose’s life. Bose’ s family had recently approached British authorities regarding the same.

Surya Kumar Bose, grandnephew of  Netaji, said that his sister, Madhuri, approached the government in the UK.

He told PTI that Madhuri got many replies from the UK government admitting that there are sensitive files on Netaji’s life but will take more time for them to decide about their declassification.

 

During the visit of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to Berlin in April, Surya had met Modi and informed him that Bose family will keep asking the government of USA, Russia and Japan to open up the files they have on Netaji.

“In post-war India, Subhash Chandra Bose was a threat to Nehru and Patel. Hence the classified files on Subhash are of immense importance,” he said.

Surya appreciated the efforts of West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee for declassifying over 60 files relating to Bose. He said that it is time for Modi government to do his work by unravelling the mystery relating to the leader’s life.

“We do not know if all the files were opened up or some were eaten up by moths or bureaucrats. This move will certainly put pressure on the Prime Minister to open up his Pandora’s box! But it would be very much more difficult for Narendra Modiji to open up all the classified Bose files,” said Surya from Berlin.

Some 13,000 pages which are in sixty-four files were declassified last month by Bengal government. The files revealed the information of Netaji’s close family members who were spied on in Independent India, but there was  no clarity about the death of Netaji.

A prominent researcher  Anuj Dhar, had claimed before the release that there was no important information in the West Bengal files.

“None of these are going to shed any light on the disappearance mystery. These files are just chicken-feed compared to those in the central government’s possession.”

He was proved right after the files were declassified.

Surya reiterated that Bose’s family will not remain quiet till the Centre declassifies all the files relating the life of Netaji.

“We shall continue the movement till sufficient pressure has been built up for the Centre to comply with our demand and the demand of the people of India.”

But he didn’t say anything about the exact date when the family approached the British authorities.

Following the same path of previous UPA government, Modi’s office in February had refused to declassify files relating to Bose.

Netaji had gone missing in 1945 and some of his family members have rejected the theory that he had died in a plane crash in Taihoku in Taiwan on August 18 that year.
